People Appreciation

One of the most heart-warming experiences a parent can have is when their children support each other.  Son Johnny, in the Crescent City hiking area of Northern California, fell through a split in rocks and broke his ankle.  Bones protruded, and my daughter-in-law Jan phoned to tell us Johnny was helicoptered out to a hospital in Medford, Oregon.  He’s being dismissed today, and our daughter Marla is flying there to help Jan drive back to Dana Point, CA where they live.  Jan will be taking care of Johnny who needs to keep his ankle elevated. Marla didn’t think twice about helping Johnny and Jan.  She said they’d do the same for her.

    Weight-bearing ankle injury takes a long, long time to heal. Johnny’s a nurse, always on his feet. Must still be very painful. Marla is a sweetie to help out.

    Sorry to hear this terrible news. Johnny and Jan just celebrated their vow renewal of ten years and were on their second honeymoon!

  3. Hi Mary Alice and Janessa– they spent a lot of money on their vow renewal. It was a wedding since they eloped the first time. Johnny arranged his disability stuff. Money will be tight. I plan to bring a dinner down every day and taxi my grandchildren, D’mitri and Roxy around. I’ll help out where I can, doing laundry etc.
